Default Good Online Shop for Quality Fly Tying Materials

Hi There,
I would like your suggestions on a good online store/source for quality fly tying materials. I do not need the cheapest available. But, I am interested in quality materials at a decent price. I have been checking with my local fly shop, but I find their selection to be pretty limited.

I am interested to know about both Trout fly materials and Salmon/steelhead fly materials. A store with good variety and deep inventory would be great.

Thanks in advance for your help.

B.

Two of my favorites (you can add the www. and the .com because hotlinks here are, I believe, a no-no): stoneriveroutfitters and redshedflyshop

One of the things I like about the Red Shed shop is that when everyone went hackle crazy for hair extensions, the Red Shed put right on their site that they were not selling to hair people. I believe the exact words were "if you can't talk the talk don't even try". That puts him up in my book.

Gary: Links are fine, especially when you are replying to a request for information. What we frown on is self-promoting links, where it looks like the only reason someone comes on the site is to promote their business.

Good info. I am familiar with poppy and Red Shed. Cool. Would like more suggestions. Also, are there any ebay store you frequently use or would recommend as a good supplier.

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

I'd also ad Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters(chifly.com). I also like the Caddis Fly Shop.
